Modern outdoor lantern – Copper lanterns that hang in your yard or garden shed light and add character to your outdoor living space. You can hang copper lanterns from shepherd’s hooks and tree branches with hangers made of craft wire. You may also need some additional supplies from your local hardware store to complete the configuration. Decorate your garden with dim lighting from copper lamps. Evaluate the copper lantern to determine if nails can be inserted anywhere on top. Copper lanterns often have tops or decorative elements attached to the top of the cup. If so, insert a nail on each side of the upper center section of the lantern. If the sand at the surprising end of your hammer will be rough the surface and help prevent the hammer from coming out of the head of the nail.
Measure the distance from one nail to the other on top of the best modern outdoor lantern. Add 6 inches to measure. Also, cut a section of 20 gauge copper wire to fit the total. Wrap one end of the wire around one nail and one end of the wire around the other nail to create a wire hook. Measure the width of the lantern through the base. And then measure the height of the copper lantern from the base to the top. Double the measure of the height and add this number to the width measurement. Then add 8 inches to the total in order to measure the length of the cable you will need to make a hanger for the lantern. Cut two lengths of 20 gauge copper wire equal to the one measured.
Insert four nails into the round base of the copper modern outdoor lantern, equally spaced from one another. If your base of the lantern is square, insert a nail in the center of each side. If your copper lantern is rectangular, insert a nail in the center of each end. Be sure to leave at least 1/4 inch of exposed nails. Wrap the ends of the copper wire strips around the opposite nails together on the base of the copper lantern. And then pull the wires to form a cage for the lantern. Place a small “S” hook where the wires intersect at the top. If you’re copper lantern is rectangular and has only one wire, pinch the wire in the center to form an inverted “T”, which will hold the hook S in place.
